Very lovely area along the river. Very nice selection of shops and restaurants. Plenty of free parking. This area is as beautiful as Williamsburg Historic park and it is free!

Like to take your date on a nice walk on the beach, then this is the place to go. Nice brick sidewalk to walk along the sandy beaches. The county definitly takes pride in their riverwalk landing. Plenty to do along the landing.

Go at or close to sunset. The view is beautiful. Great place to take the kids and teach them the history of how we became a free and independent nation. The kids will get to help and learn how to set off a cannon
